Who am I?

I'm Dave Shirman, a professional app and web-developer living in Shoreham-By-Sea, UK. I studied at Sussex University many years ago and never quite managed to leave Sussex. I am also a keen boulderer, swimmer, cyclist, eater.

What do I make?

I really like to make cross-platform mobile apps, using the Ionic 2 Framework. These apps are built with open-source web technologies such as HTML5, Angular 2 and Cordova, with full access to device hardware such as the:

  • Accelerometer
  • Camera
  • Compass
  • TouchID
  • Bluetooth
  • and much more...

If you're looking for an app that works on iOS and Android, that is relatively straightforward, this is a great way to achieve a consistent, platform specific user interface and feel without having to write two completely separate apps, one in Objective-C/Swift and the other in Java.

If you need help with an existing app, or have an idea for a new one, I'd love to hear about it.

Where do I work?

I primarily work from home in Shoreham-By-Sea, with ability to hold client meetings over Skype and FaceTime. I would be happy to travel to you if you would like to talk through a project and would prefer a face-to-face meeting. However, there must be cake and beer. Contact me to discuss which beers I prefer.
